March 19 Snow Levels

Preview looks ok, lets see if it works. Spring is officially just a couple of days away but you'd never know it around here. Below normal temps and very little melting going on. Just enough to cause doors to freeze up and become even harder to open than normal. Like great uncle Jack used to say, "We get 6 months of winter and 6 months of poor sleighing".

Winter Continues

Hope it ends soon. This latest storm left such hard drifts of snow that the snow blower could hardly cut into it. Just finished and a bearing broke on the auger drive so the blower is down til I can get it apart and a new bearing installed. At least it is not super freezing cold like it has been. I can still move snow with the blade on the bigger tractor but that leaves huge ridges and piles of snow that just catch more snow. And eventually we run out of room to pile snow. Diesel fuel is not getting any cheaper last time I checked. Picture from yesterday's activities. At least the scenery was nice.

Jigsaw Puzzles

I've enjoyed wasting a good many hours of my life putting together jigsaw puzzles over the years. I recently found that there were online jigsaw puzzles that could be made out of my own photos. I can see where that could be pretty addictive. Heres one from 1958 from right here in sunny Saskatchewan. https://jigex.com/NHyoa

Outstanding Scenery

Just had to shoot some video today showing the amazing "hoar frost" scenery we have been seeing most of the week. Its been a rare break from the miserable winds that we get way too much of in a normal winter. Fairly mild too for us. I needed to get to town for mail and groceries anyway as it must be a couple of weeks since I was in town. Still working on getting over the last of this cold I've had since the beginning of December. Its definitely one of the longest lasting I can ever remember and I have gone years without having a serious cold. The sunshine and blue sky today definitely adds to the photos and videos. Kind of the Paul Simon "kodachrome effect" in which we are made to think all the world is a sunny day. Ok, I was trying to post the scenic video here but either my Sasktel internet is way too slow to handle it or else blogger is getting stubborn. I'll just try to post the link. https://youtu.be/IDXVZ_8y5V0 And maybe a picture?
